25 Random Things...Yada yada yada.

I've been tagged a bunch of time in this 25 Random Things About Me meme on Facebook. I was trying to ignore it, but I have to admit that I've been sucked into reading a few of my friend's 25 Lists, so I figured I'd pony up and write my own. I don't think I'm going to tag anyone though, because most people I know are pretty busy, and I don't need to be another thing on their "to do" list. Well, maybe I'll tag you if you have tagged me already, meaning, you have already written a list.

1. My daughter was born on my birthday. Even better, my son was born on my husband's birthday. Our birthdays are all a week apart, April 23rd for the boys and April 30th for the girls. Mother Nature at her finest.

2. If you haven't already heard, my son Max has Autism. I am pretty much obsessed with helping him. I am incredibly optimistic that he will be okay, but I worry about him all the time.

3. Every time I see a clock at 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55 or 11:11, I make a wish. My wish is always that Max will be okay.

4. I am not known for slowing down at yellow lights.

5. My favourite nickname is one my husband's friend Mike Nelson gave me: Nails.

6. Once I say I am going to do something, I typically complete it within a very short period of time.

7. My idea of a relaxing on a Friday night is installing new taps in all of my bathrooms. Stop laughing, I've done it.

8. I think about my weight too much and I beat myself up for thinking about it so much.

9. I have two degrees in music, but I don't like performing (it makes me feel incredibly anxious).

10. I would like to go back to school to get a degree in Music Therapy, as I believe that this is my true calling. There, now that I've said it, I will probably do it.

11. I think red heads are incredibly sexy, yet I have never dated one. In fact, my "type" tends to be tall, slim, brunettes with dark complexions. Go figure.

12. The majority of boys I had crushes on pre-University ended up being gay.

13. My husband is pretty much my complete opposite in every sense.

14. I am physically unable to get into an unmade bed.

15. I have more hobbies than I could possibly ever have time for (quilting, canning, crocheting, knitting, rug-hooking, teddy bear making...the list goes on). I look forward to the day that I can get back into these.

16. I would really like to take a life drawing class.

17. I have lived in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and Iowa, but Toronto is the only place that really feels like home.

18. Someday I will get laser eye surgery. I would also like a boob lift and tummy tuck.

19. I hope that my relationship with my daughter is as good as my relationship with my mom.

20. My next house will have an exquisite bathroom with a beautiful soaker tub and nobody will be allowed to use it except me.

21. When I was three, my pet budgy died, and I asked my mom if it was "okay if I wasn't sad?".

22. I am physically incapable of sleeping in the buff, I need my pajamas.

23. I don't usually laugh out loud, unless it is at someone else's expense (I know, MEAN!)...I'm working on it.

24. The older I get, the less I care what other people think about me. This is very liberating.

25. I am looking forward to going back to work in a few months, and I feel mildly guilty about this.
